Moved from Jumping Spiders.

Eris militaris
Taking a quick look at the specimens, I believe this as well as are Eris militaris.


Hi Brad,

I'm in the States until June 30th; you're welcome to send me the whole bath, if you like. Then we can get a closer look at pedipalpae, etc. Just drop me a note (click on my name).

Best from Spearfish Canyon in the Black Hills,


Just curious -
any ID on this one? I would have guessed it was one of the many Pelegrina sp...

Pelegrina does look right
but I can't ever tell them from the Eris. Then add some similar looking Phanias (which I think we can rule out here based on the face shot) and I just start to go cross-eyed. I was hoping for some obvious mark, but I'm not seeing anything.

Will find out eventually
I'm pretty sure I sent this one to Kevin; once he gets around to looking at these I'm sure we'll get a name.

Will do
and I added a facial view for Lynette.

male jumper
a front view of the face might help on this one.
